My name is Heather Bertrand.
I use to babysit back in high school haven't really been a real nanny before. I love kids , have a neice and a nephew they are the love of my life. I really don't think I would be standing without them today. I have had a very hard past and it's not easy coming up from the bottom at all, still trying to get there. I'm a very out going person and I don't quit till I'm there.

I've been babysitting for the last 6 years, in home and in my own home. I will have events planned for each week day including homework, reading, play-time, snacks, circle time, and educational movies. For the weekends, depending on weather, I love bringing the kids to the museum, park or the zoo/aquarium. I am CPR/First Aid Certified. I have experience with children of all ages ranging from 1 month-16 years old in a day care setting as well. At the day care, I work with 3 months - 2 year olds. I write a monthly curriculum pertaining to fine and gross motor skills; arts and crafts and circle time (shapes, colors, numbers, sing-a-long classics, and abc's) are my favorite! I have my own car so taking the kids where they need to go is not a problem. I grew up on a small farm so taking care of animals is not a problem! I also provide light house keeping, errands, pet care as well!
